On Monday evening, April 17, 2023 at 7:30 pm, Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) will be commemorated with the “Reading of Names” program to be held at Temple Ohev Sholom. We hope that you and your family will be able to attend this special opening service and stay for a portion of the Reading of Names program.
In an effort to pass the torch of remembrance to the next generation, students from congregational Religious Schools and the Silver Academy will participate in the opening ceremony. They will also read names with their parents immediately following the opening ceremony.
The Reading of Names is a vigil in which the names of those who perished during the Holocaust are read continuously over a period of 24 hours. “Unto Every Person There is a Name” seeks to dignify the memories of victims of the Shoah (the Nazi Holocaust) by reading their names aloud. These victims were stripped of their names by their oppressors and tattooed with numbers. Through the public reading of the names of Holocaust victims, this program strives to restore a portion of their humanity and to retrieve them from the lost depths of anonymity.
Temple Ohev Sholom’s time slots for reading are Tuesday, April 18 from 3:00 am- 4:30 am and from 1:30-3:30 pm. For more information or if you would like to sign up for reading, please contact our congregational representatives, Gloria Kaplan for the middle of the night slots (via ZOOM) at [email protected] or Judy Heckert for the afternoon slots (in person) at [email protected]. You may also contact Jenna Rappaport at the Jewish Community Center at 717-236-9555, ext.3402 ([email protected]).
